R for Violence and Batman F-Bombs

Zack Snyder believed that his cut of Justice League, dubbed The Snyder Cut, would receive an R-rating, and it turns out he was right.

Snyder’s Justice League has now officially been rated ‘R’ for –

“violence and some language,”

It was previously announced that Batman will indeed be dropping at least one F-bomb in this HBO Max original, Snyder has been hinting at the substantial differences between his version of Justice League and what audiences saw in theaters, with the filmmaker predicting that The Snyder Cut would nab a “Restricted” rating. The director said –

“Here’s one piece of information nobody knows: The movie is insane and so epic and is probably rated R – that’s one thing I think will happen, that it will be an R-rated version, for sure,”

“We haven’t heard from the MPAA, but that’s my gut…There’s one scene where Batman drops an F-bomb. Cyborg is not too happy with what’s going on with his life before he meets the Justice League, and he tends to speak his mind.”

“And Steppenwolf is pretty much just hacking people in half. So [the rating would be due to] violence and profanity, probably both.”

The movie is expected to feature a solid two-and-a-half hours of unseen footage, so expect something very different to what replacement director Joss Whedon produced back in 2017.

The Snyder Cut is now scheduled to be released to HBO Max on March 18th, 2021.
